Castle Poipu Shores, A Condominium Resort

The Castle Poipu Shores at Pe'e Road in Poipu in the island of Kauai in Hawaii is an oceanfront condominium resort that sits atop a bluff and it is only one mile from the Poipu Shopping Village that stages Polynesian dance and music shows for free. The key features of this resort are the peaceful ambiance and the fact that it is right next to the Pacific Ocean so that you may be able to actually count the whales when they migrate during the winter season.
